00:01:01--> 00:02:08

Taala. And to benefit all of you, all of our brothers and sisters, the topic is the top 10 ways to remain happy in life. Subhan Allah, every one of us would like to be happy, and for achieving happiness, we do so many things Subhana Allah, so in order to ensure that we actually achieve true happiness and remain happy. This is the webinar coming to you in sha Allah in the light of the Quran and the teachings of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this is your brother, Mohammed and insha Allah I shall take you to the journey of knowing and exploring the top 10 ways to remain happy in our lives. Insha Allah with the help and the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala My beloved

00:02:08--> 00:02:45

brothers and sisters, what we need to realize fundamentally is they should be some disclaimers that should be loud and clear for us to go further in this webinar. Disclaimer number one, happiness does not mean absence of problems, challenges, difficulties, issues, obstacles, and the rest. Happiness means to ensure that we gain the ability to deal with these challenges.

00:02:46--> 00:02:52

We need to realize and understand that we, all of us are not, you know,

00:02:53--> 00:02:56

able to think or should not think that we,

00:02:57--> 00:03:28

when we want to be happy, we want to live without any problems, that's not possible. The problems, the challenges, the difficulties, are bound to be there, but the happy people, they know the art of dealing with it. That's number one. Number two happiness in life in Islam, or the Islamic context of the perspective is, it comes from Allah subhanho wa Taala he is the owner and the source of happiness.

00:03:30--> 00:03:31

Disclaimer number three,

00:03:32--> 00:04:01

we will be showing the 10 ways of making ourselves of being happy and remain happy insha Allah, but that does not mean that these are only 10 ways. It could be my many other ways. However, we can say insha Allah undoubtedly that these are the 10 most important and essential ways to remain happy in our lives. Insha Allah, my beloved brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:04:03--> 00:04:08

The first way to be happy and to remain happy

00:04:09--> 00:04:16

in our lives, is to gain the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:04:17--> 00:04:59

drive yourself with these key principles that are prescribed by Allah subhanho wa Taala and described by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and I assure you, I guarantee you insha Allah be isn't Allah He to Allah, no matter what the situation looks like you and I insha Allah with the help and the permission of Allah, we'll be able to start fast and be firm in dealing with those situations. What are these key principles is the number one the Toshi, that is oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. How do we actually gain the pleasure of Allah is the

00:05:00--> 00:05:52

First way, by believing in Allah subhanho wa Taala alone and not associating partners with him. Number two, living ourselves based on the model of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and number three always have this consciousness off here after the Satoshi risala and arciero these are the driving principles that will help us to gain the momentum of being happy in our lives. Through the belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala we actually gain the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, as I, you know, recited the beginning, a lot of Vanessa he says in Surah Surah number 16, iron number 97 whoever does righteous deeds, whether male or female, while he

00:05:52--> 00:06:46

is a believer, we will surely make him or give him or grant him a good life, Allahu Akbar. So who is guaranteeing here? Allah subhanho wa Taala. So Allah says, Whoever does righteous deeds, whether male or female, Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, while he is a believer, when he does that good things that family saw earlier, a lot of Billerica says we will surely cause him to live a good life, a happy life, a successful life, Allah further says, and we will surely give them their reward in the Hereafter, according to the best of what they use to do. So, also what we need to realize is our happiness when it comes to, you know, Islamic perspective, the happiness of this world is

00:06:46--> 00:07:45

tightly linked and integrated with the happiness of the year after, right. So we need to understand that we are talking about not just the not just being happy here, but being happy in the year after as well in sha Allah. So by doing that model or that perspective, of having these key principles in our lives, insha Allah, we will remain happy now How is it possible? How can this be practically realized? Well, Allah subhanho wa Taala, as I said, He is the owner of happiness, he is the grantor of happiness. And he says, and he says, that when you do good, when you rely on me, when you have conscious of mine, when you follow and obey on my principles, I guarantee the happiness I guarantee

00:07:45--> 00:08:42

the good life and success for you. So, obviously, when a person believes in Allah, he gains the ability to be firm faith definitely makes a person firm in dealing with situations right. Because we know that in life, we have to face some of the other side, you know, issue was or situation or problem, be it financial problem, be it a problem with the relationship, beat a problem of, you know, status be a problem of health, beat, any problem, we have to face some all the other time, these situations. So when you have the belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala, you start trusting Allah subhanho wa Taala and you feel relaxed, you are, you know, in the, in the, in the, in the state of

00:08:42--> 00:09:24

consciousness of Allah subhana wa Taala and when you look at the model of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, you will realize and I will realize that you know what, the prophets and the never listen also went through all these difficulties, but he never let his faith down, he never lost his hope in Allah subhanho wa Taala he was always be hopeful in the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala and then when you link up with the third principle and that is the Hereafter, you know, that this challenge situation and you know, sort of difficulties are only limited to this world, it's not going to be there insha Allah in the hereafter a person who does this for the pleasure or for

00:09:24--> 00:09:31

gaining the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala will remain happy A lot of times, my beloved brothers and sisters,

00:09:32--> 00:09:59

we see that we tend to please people and we expect from people so what happens? We start building our expectations to an extent that we should actually be setting up that kind of expectation only from Allah subhanaw taala so what happens when we do not meet those expectations, those level of hopes from people, we get upset and we get hurt.

00:10:00--> 00:10:53

We are harmed by those things and ultimately we become sad. Ultimately, we actually failed. So we need to understand that we need to have expectations only from Allah subhanaw taala he is the one to reward you, He is the one to punish us. So we need to have that belief factor in Allah subhanho wa Taala that is a done deal and Subhana Allah Allah Buddha he says in Surah Surah number 103 is number 1231 answer in Al insana, Luffy Casa Illa Lavina Manu The first thing Allah subhanaw taala mentions in this surah about the saved people are the people who are not going to be lost or the people who are not going to be sad or fail is the believers, the one who believes, so, seeking the pleasure of

00:10:53--> 00:11:51

Allah subhanaw taala is the number one way to gain and to remain happy in our lives. Point number two, self esteem, you see a lot of times we tend we tend to think about you know completely on others and we forget ourselves Subhan Allah, this is the common mistake that happens and as a result, we actually become sad as a result, we get dejected. Remember, my beloved brothers and sisters, if you do not value yourself, if you do not respect yourself, if you do not make yourself happy and satisfied, you are never going to make others happy. Remember that, remember and mark these words, remember that we have to have a balanced self esteem, we see in the society in our

00:11:51--> 00:12:41

lives, there are three, you know, perspectives on on this point on this, you know, issue of self esteem, the first is extremely on high level. So people are extremely, you know, conscious of their selves. And as a result, they become egoistic, and they, you know, tend to be proud and they actually look down upon others. This is absolutely not desirable. The other extreme is a low self esteem people, they think that they are nothing, people, they actually do not respect themselves. They do not value themselves, those kind of people, they are sad, those kind of people, they do not have that sense of happiness, because they don't think they're anything, they do not have their own

00:12:41--> 00:13:32

worth in their minds and hearts. So how are you going to make yourself happy? Allahu Akbar. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said something very, very powerful. He said, You have the heart on yourself, you have the right upon yourself. So we're not, we're not talking about that you have to be proud, which is the one extreme, neither we're talking about, you lose your own value in your own sight and in the sight of others. As a result, you are you you do not gain the momentum of happiness. So make sure that you, you you be self confident, you, you know drive your own lives, you take your own wise decisions, you gain the ability to respect yourself, and to have that, you know,

00:13:33--> 00:13:52

belief factor, of course, seeking the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala. Always in your mind. So when you will have the self esteem, even you know how to carry yourself happily in sha Allah, Allah, Allah Rizal will make you happy and will remain will make make you remain happy in sha Allah in your life.

00:13:53--> 00:13:54

Point number three,

00:13:56--> 00:14:49

to have a sound heart or soul, you know, you need I need to work on our soul, our heart, we need to ensure that you know the reflection on the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam as he said, true enrichment he said true enrichment does not come through possessing a lot of wealth, that but true enrichment is the enrichment of the soul. You know, a lot of times we see that, you know, we are we assume or some people assume that rich people are very happy. Well, that's not the case. Sometimes, you know, a person who sleeps under a tree, you know, he looks and he seems to be a lot more happier than the one who is living perhaps in a very high class home, roaming and driving a

00:14:49--> 00:14:59

very fancy car. So, happiness does not mean that you have lots of wealth. Happiness means enrichment of soul. So what

00:15:00--> 00:15:52

nourishes your heart. What chores are what gives the feeding to your heart are many things number one, the vicar of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Number two, not having any bad feelings, grudges, you know, wrong thoughts about people will lie. When you have this heavy heart, you will never be able to gain happiness. You will never be happy, unless you, you know, cure your heart. You know, because your emotions are driven from your heart. You need to have a proper control and have a sound heart and that is the reason Allah subhanho wa Taala. He says that on the Day of Judgment, what will be accepted? Calvin Saleem, your sound heart, your pure heart, your healthy heart. So you and me meet

00:15:52--> 00:16:39

to really work on this, have this heart therapy and how does it happen? You need to isolate yourself time and again every single day, and try to you know, purify your, your feelings, and try to make sure that you do not give any wrong, you know, feelings for anyone, anyone in Japan alone. One of the tips that we get from one of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is that every single night before he goes to bed, he used to make sure that he forgives everyone Subhan Allah. So that's how you actually make your heart healthy. When you have a hard heart or a heavy heart or a harsh heart.

00:16:41--> 00:17:27

Do you think that you will you will be happy anyways? Of course not. So what's the point? What's the benefit? What's the you know, you know, point of, of focusing on something that is going to actually ruin or create more problems. My beloved brothers and sisters, Islam provides this recipe of making your heart a pure heart, making your heart a healthy and sound heart when you work and we need to really work on it. It's it's an organ as a Prophet, salallahu alaihe salam, he said, there is an organ in your heart, if that is good, the rest of the body will be good, and that is heart. That is heart. So you need to take care of your heart a lot, work on it rigorously, again and again, on your

00:17:27--> 00:18:15

heart. So to make sure that your heart is pure, your heart has Allah subhanaw taala in it. You need to have your heart, the love of the prophets and the level and he said them your heart should be attached to Allah, your heart must be very strong, that he does not care what the people say over what Allah subhanaw taala says. So when your heart condition is this, this spirituality, it enlightens and it enriches and that's how you can be happy and remain happy in sha Allah, point number four, positive mindset, positive mindset having that that positive, you know, feelings and thought process right? with Allah subhanaw taala with the people around will help you make a and

00:18:15--> 00:19:06

make you happy inshallah will remain. You happy B is indeed it to Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala he says Anna in the name of dB Allahu Akbar, Allah subhanaw taala says Anna in the Vani Abebe, I am as my servant thinks of me. So what is that you think of your, your, your maker, your Creator, Allah subhanaw taala if you have good hopes, in Allah, Allah will give you that if you want to, to seek happiness from Allah subhanaw taala Allah will give you that if you have high hopes, success, you know, and good life, expecting from Allah subhanaw taala will give you that so have positive hopes in the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala a lot of Isaiah is is locked up in a tumor Rahmatullah do not

00:19:06--> 00:19:55

know lose hope in the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala so have extremely high hopes in Allah subhanho wa Taala we always positively You know, a lot of times we think that you know, what, if I have done something wrong, and then I start to build an opinion on myself for myself, expectation from Allah subhana wa Taala that Allah is not going to forgive me, you know, I am actually airing I am actually really falling short in doing good deeds, and I'm not able to do this and that and as a result, you build up an opinion and impression about Allah subhanaw taala that he will let you down. Allahu Akbar. This is a grave mistake. And it's not done by anyone except those who are losers. It's not

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

done by anyone except those who are sad people. If you and me one

00:20:00--> 00:20:41

To remain happy, have high hopes in the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala be extremely positive. Also, we need to ensure that we should be positive about people. Of course, we need to live among the people we need to live among the family members, we need to live among the friends and the relatives and the neighbors and the colleagues and the classmates and the society we need to interact and engage, you know, ourselves with each other. So what we need to do is we need to have a positive mindset with each other. As we know, in Islam, it is highly encouraged to have has not been, you know, good feeling good thoughts with each other, when you have that good, good thought, inshallah,

00:20:41--> 00:20:45

you will not feel any bad, you know,

00:20:46--> 00:21:31

feelings in your heart and when you don't feel that of course, you are going to remain happy in sha Allah, you know, the righteous predestined as they used to say that find 70 excuses from your brother, you know, find 70 excuses, you know, try to zoom when there is anything wrong that happens or you get to know there's something wrong happening, try to assume the best possible scenario, the best possible situation, the best possible, you know, feeling from that brother, from the sister from the wife from the aspirin from each other in short, so when you have that good expectations, regardless whether the person is right or wrong, you will be happy inshallah, this is the beauty of

00:21:31--> 00:22:12

being positive in our life. So we talked about belief in Allah subhanaw taala, driven by these principles of towheaded risotto, and Akira, we talked about you need to carry yourself make yourself happy, first self esteem. And of course, when you're when we are saying, make yourself happy, we do not mean at the expense of hurting others, we do not mean by any way, you know, harming others and you'll be happy no, you'll be happy in your own self, that inner peace that you must work on. And then we talked about the sound heart and having that spirituality ignited in you and then have a very clean and pure heart that makes you and me happy inshallah. And then we talked about the

00:22:12--> 00:23:00

positive mindset that we need to have, you know, having good expectations from Allah subhanaw taala and have good expectations, you know, from the people as well. Now, point number five, healthy living, you know, our body has right on us. So we need to ensure that we take care of our diet, we need to ensure that we exercise well. We need to ensure that we, you know, sleep well we need to take rest, you know, well, when we have this body, our our health in proper state, believe me, it is going to help us big time in making ourselves happy and making ourselves remain on happiness in sha Allah as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said near Matan Mark Boone Fie maka theorem in

00:23:00--> 00:23:02

us a set had to work for a

00:23:03--> 00:23:56

lot of people they are neglectful about two great blessings, the health and the free time. So, this health we need to really really ensure that it is taken in a good wave we have to ensure that we have to you know focus on our health having you know, regular health checks and having a good diet having a body which is you know, Alhamdulillah presentable and a healthy body inshallah. So your mind, your heart, your soul, your body, when they are in good shape, when they are in good state insha Allah you will be happy and you will remain happy in sha Allah isn't the lightoller point number six, the quality of suburban sugar. We have to always keep in mind that to be happy. We have

00:23:56--> 00:24:52

to have these two qualities parallely working together. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said I'm amazed by the affair of the believer, if he's granted goodness, he praises Allah subhana wa Taala and is grateful. He is grateful. And if he's afflicted with the calamity, he praises Allah subhanaw taala and he's patient. He is patient, the believer is rewarded for every matter. Allahu Akbar, the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, he said, the believer he is rewarded for every matter, even feeding a morsel of food to his wife. So Subhanallah when you see the quality of supper and sugar, they are the two essential ingredients to make our life happy. How when you understand life,

00:24:52--> 00:24:59

life has difficulties and life has ease as well right when you have problems and solutions

00:25:00--> 00:25:50

When you have peace and difficulties disturbances in, in the state when you have ease, you need to do what you need to thank Allah subhanaw taala you need to have that, that element of sugar in yourself. And you need to be able to show that gratitude, reflect and manifest that gratitude for Allah subhanho wa Taala for the blessings that He has given us, what will be the outcome, Allah subhanaw taala says, The in shocker to come, if you are grateful, I shall increase, increase What? Increase anything, if you are grateful to Allah subhanaw taala a lot of boiler is is going to increase, you know, in your wealth, in your health, in your relations, in anything, whatever, you

00:25:50--> 00:26:30

know, that you're looking for. So one element in good state in easiest state never forget a lot of Blaser, if you remember Allah in depth in ease, Allah will remember you in difficulty in sha Allah. So, this is the attitude of the believer that he is always, you know, foremost in terms of showing his sugar, his gratitude to Allah subhanaw taala in in times of ease, in times of difficulties, which is bound to be there, he is patient, you know, Subhana Allah, something interesting, I would like to share with all of you, and that is we need to have this, this element of, you know,

00:26:31--> 00:27:24

clear framework and this framework is when you believe in Allah subhanaw taala what do you do, you actually rely on Allah subhanaw taala you will start trusting Allah subhanaw taala when you trust Allah subhanaw taala trusting in a holistic means that you will have to work you have to do your part, so you do your part. So when you trust Allah subhanaw taala you do your part, or when you do your part, then you trust Allah subhanaw taala and then you willingly accept the decision of Allah subhanaw taala whether it comes in favor of you, or against you, in either of the ways you as a believer, knows that Allah knows better than you and we do. Allah has a better perspective or the

00:27:24--> 00:28:09

best perspective than you and me do, Allah knows, you know, what is good for us better than we ourselves, you know, know. So when you have this mindset, that when you work, you trust Allah and then you accept his decision, willingly accepting the decision helps you are at ease and give you peace and happiness or life experience and experiment this and we have to do this, there is no other way out. Right when you do this, obviously, you will be rewarded with the key element of happiness in this world. And in the Hereafter, you will be rewarded as well as we mentioned. So we need to have this this, this framework. Number one, I need to make, you know, my efforts to the best of my

00:28:09--> 00:29:04

level two, I need to trust Allah subhanaw taala and three, I need to accept the decision of Allah, whether it comes in favor of me or against me, I would like to share with you one story of one of my You know, Friends Subhan Allah, my friend and and his wife, they have been married for eight years, eight years, they did not have any child and Subhanallah they were waiting and they were trying to pray and do everything possible. Subhan Allah, they, after eight years were blessed with a child and the child was sick, so sick, that he was not even taken out from the ICU. So after eight years of waiting, they got a child and they had this baby right in the ICU. And they were patient, they they

00:29:04--> 00:29:51

were showing and hamdulillah Allah has, at least after eight years, shown us the sign that we can have a baby. So for a few days, or perhaps a month, that baby was still there in the ICU, and eventually that baby passed away. That baby passed away. And Subhanallah I am telling you, my beloved brothers and sisters, the couple stood really formed having the trust in Allah subhanaw taala willingly submission to Allah subhanaw taala and accepting the decision of a lot of Buddha is that, you know, Allah has at least shown us the sign that we can have, you know, children, and just last year they were blessed with a with a baby goat Subhan Allah. So the fruits of patience is

00:29:51--> 00:29:59

Jenna. What What is the matter of this world? Subhan Allah. So a lot of times it might come to you know, a perspective that how long

00:30:00--> 00:30:46

I am going to be patient well until we die, because this life is temporary, this life is temporary when we have to have patience, there is no other way out, there is no magical way that is going to change your your and my situation. If there are trials in our lives, we have to submit and we have to, you know, move forward in our lives. Point number seven insha Allah is avoid competitions, comparisons and complaining in our lives. If you and me want to be happy, we have to ensure that we don't get into that, that you know, scope of competition with the people in the matters of dunya This is one of the greatest ways that actually make people sad in their lives, they try to compare

00:30:46--> 00:31:32

others with them. Everyone is different. everyone's life is different, everyone's situations is different, everyone has a unique problem, everyone has a unique way of dealing those problems. So never compare. Never ever compare. If someone is rich, so be it, how does it matter, pray for them. inshallah, if somebody has more children, pray for them, if somebody has big house, pray for them. Never, ever compare yourself with others, that makes you negative and that makes you you know, distress and that actually ultimately makes you unhappy. So, avoid competitions, comparisons, and complaints in life, live your life to the fullest and be content having that these qualities which

00:31:32--> 00:31:50

we discussed, you know, above, have those qualities and inshallah you will remain happy is Neela he to Allah, point number eight, keep forgiving and forgetting people keep forgetting the faults of the people. Allah Subhana huhtala through the prophet sallallahu alayhi salam told us, you know,

00:31:51--> 00:32:40

that a lot of Budweiser, you know, obviously, when he says to the Prophet sallallahu, and he says, That, again is a worry for us, you know, as we know, when my young tip or Anil Hawa, inwa illa what you have profits in Islam, he does not speak of himself, but whatever the whatever the guidance or the revelation that comes from Allah subhanaw taala. So the prophets of Allah and he sent him he said, mark these words, my beloved brothers and sisters, mark these words, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi, salaam, he said, I guaranteed a house, a palace in Geneva, for one who gives up arguing even if he's right, even if he's right, and I guarantee a house in the middle of Geneva for the one who

00:32:40--> 00:33:30

abandons lying even for the sake of fun. So and he continues, and I guarantee a house in the highest level of Jannah, for the one who has good manners. So when you keep forgetting, and forgiving people, you will remain happy. I guarantee you, you will never be happy if you carry bad feelings and wrong, you know, doings of people in your heart. Just forget and forgive, forget and forgive. That's the only solution. Now you might have a question how long again, until we die, until we die, we need to forget and forgive people. Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah, two news, Rama 24 and number 22. And let them pardon an overlook. Would you not like that Allah to forgive you? Subhana

00:33:30--> 00:34:19

Allah. So we do so many mistakes, errors, shortcomings, you know, how long the last panel forgives us? continuously, perpetually, right. So we need to also to remain happy to remain happy, we have to have this quality of forgetting and forgiving people and Subhanallah this, this element of anger that comes into play right? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam, he said, when a person comes to him and says, oh, Prophet, advise me, the person, his question is very clear, and very straightforward. The Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, he said, Nah, don't get angry. The Prophet, the person says, you know, advise me more. The Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, he said, Don't get angry. And he keeps on

00:34:19--> 00:34:59

saying that meaning that anger if it is not managed and controlled, it is so destructive, that it will resume your life and it will spoil your happiness for short. This is for sure. So when you control your anger, when you make sure that you manage your anger, you will be able to live a healthy and happy life, my beloved brothers and sisters, let us be a person who forgets and forgive and let us be a person who controls his anger. Who knows how to manage his affairs, right? And who knows how to let it go, you know, situation, don't get and brag about things for every single, you know,

00:35:00--> 00:35:47

Words that you want to catch up people, you know, situations that you want to exploit and, and brag about it, don't do that.
